Human chain around Luthuli House

Johannesburg - The ANCYL and the YCLSA will form a human chain around Luthuli House on Wednesday ahead of a march by the Democratic Alliance for "real jobs".

"[We] regard the planned DA march to the ANC headquarters as an act of provocation," said Mzwandile Masina, national convenor of the African National Congress Youth League. "[The] ANCYL... will be out in full force to form a human chain and defend Luthuli House."

The Young Communist League of SA said the ANC had done a lot in the past 20 years to better the lives of South Africans.

The DA said it would march for "real" jobs. It initially planned to march to Luthuli House but it was thwarted by metro police.

The party would instead march to Beyers Naude Square, a block away from Luthuli House.

In a statement on Tuesday, Arendse said the DA had repeatedly said it would hold a peaceful march in downtown Johannesburg.

"Any security precautions we are taking are defensive, not offensive.

"These precautions are based on a responsible assessment of the risk to our own members and activists," he said.

"We are all too mindful of the inability of the SA Police Service and the Johannesburg metro police department to protect our members."

The ANC filed an urgent application in the South Gauteng High Court for a protection order against the DA. It lost the application.
